The details are still being worked out but will be published soon. RSVP to be alerted to the latest news. But this will be an excellent event for all! Stay tuned. 
GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri will be the featured speaker at the Big Bang Data Science - Georgia Meetup on March 19.  He'll explain the main components of Apache Ignite, such as the Compute Grid, Data Grid, and the Machine Learning Grid. Through examples, attendees will learn how Apache Ignite can be used for data analysis. RSVP here.
GridGain Systems president & CEO Abe Kleinfeld will be speaking on a panel discussion titled: "Scaling-up fast: Unlocking leadership & talent to generate growth -- lessons from the Tech Tour Growth50." The Tech Tour Growth Summit -- March 22-23 in Geneva & Lausanne, Switzerland -- will bring together 50+ of Europe's boldest CEOs: the entrepreneurs with the vision and drive to build game changing businesses.
GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri will host a hands-on workshop at Symbion in Copenhagen on March 27 titled, "In-Memory Computing Essentials for Data Scientists." Register here.
The 10x growth of transaction volumes, 50x growth in data volumes and drive for real-time visibility and responsiveness over the last decade have pushed traditional technologies including databases beyond their limits. Your choices are either buy expensive hardware to accelerate the wrong architecture, or do what other companies have started to do and invest in technologies being used for modern hybrid transactional analytical applications (HTAP). 
Past Events
Akmal Chaudhri, GridGain's technical evangelist, will present at the Berlin Kubernetes Meetup on Feb. 21 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. The title of his talk, "Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!"
Valentin Kulichenko, lead architect at GridGain Systems, will present at the February 21 gathering of the Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup. This event will run from 6-9 p.m. at 3350 Scott Blvd, Santa Clara, CA (Building 54). This event is free but you must RSVP! Val's talk is titled, "Building consistent and highly available distributed systems with Apache Ignite and GridGain."
The Java Usergroup Berlin-Brandenburg Meetup and Signavio GmbH welcome GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri to it's Feb. 20 meetup where his talk is titled, "Skyrocket Java applications with the open-source Apache Ignite." It will be held at Kurfürstenstraße 111, 10787 Berlin from 6:30-8:30 p.m. local time. 
It used to be that the only way to improve application performance was to add a cache. But caches like Redis don't understand SQL. They require you to modify your applications with non-SQL coding and data models, and copy and synch data across two different models. They don't support ACID transactions very well. And they have their limits when it comes to scalability.
Dani Traphagen, a solution architect at GridGain Systems, will speak at the San Francisco Kubernetes Meetup on Feb. 15. The title of her presentation: "Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!" Talk details: Distributed databases can make so many things easier for a developer, but not always for DevOps. Kubernetes has come to the rescue with an easy application orchestration!
Fotios Filacouris, senior solutions architect, at GridGain Systems, will be the featured speaker at the Boston Java Meetup Group on Feb. 13. The title of his talk is "Java and In-Memory Computing: Apache Ignite." Talk details: 
Apache Ignite native persistence is a distributed ACID and SQL-compliant store that turns Apache Ignite into a full-fledged distributed SQL database. It allows you to have 0-100% of your data in RAM with guaranteed durability using a broad range of storage technologies, have immediate availability on restart, and achieve high volume read and write scalability with low latency using SQL and ACID transactions.
GridGain senior solutions architect Fotios Filacouris will be the featured speaker at the Feb. 12 Boston MySQL Meetup Group. The title of his talk will be, "Turbocharge your MySQL queries in-memory with Apache Ignite." Please RSVP now to reserve your spot.
